Report: Chelsea expected to pursue move for ‘very gifted’ 22-year-old this summer, there’s one obvious problem.



Chelsea is reportedly considering a summer transfer for a ‘extremely gifted’ 22-year-old, but there is one apparent obstacle.It is anticipated that Chelsea will attempt to acquire Crystal Palace’s Michael Olise this summer.

As of now, transfer rumors suggest that to be the case.Saturday’s TEAMalk reports that Chelsea are still interested in purchasing Michael Olise, who attended the Blues academy from age seven to fourteen.


At the conclusion of the current campaign, the Blues may pursue a transfer for the 22-year-old attacker for Crystal Palace, it is explained.


Nevertheless, the presence of Manchester United poses an evident obstacle.According to the report, Manchester United under Erik ten Hag are closely monitoring Olise in preparation for a summer transfer.


Olise foremost desired a transfer to Old Trafford in order to play for Manchester United.Olise, whose injury-plagued season has seen him score five goals in nine Premier League appearances, undoubtedly possesses star-caliber individual ability.


The adept left-footed winger appears capable of making an impact for any of the major European clubs, so Chelsea’s interest in him is to be expected. Our concern is that the Blues would be better served by acquiring a goalscoring forward as opposed to another wide man.


Olise, whom Gary Lineker lauded as “extremely talented” on X, will undoubtedly amass considerable wealth in the near future.


TEAMtalk’s report also indicates that Olise’s contract with Selhurst Pak includes a release clause that will go into effect in the summer; however, the fee associated with this provision remains unspecified. Without a doubt, it will exceed £35 million.Michael Olise prefers a switch to Manchester United.

Chelsea may already be in a difficult position to acquire Olise due to the United element, but time will tell.


In November, journalist Simon Phillips reported via Substack that Chelsea intend to attempt to acquire Olise once more before the end of the current campaign.


His unfavorable injury record ought to raise an immediate red flag for prospective purchasers. Talent and caliber are indisputable when the Frenchman is in good health, nevertheless.
